Swedish House Mafia
SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA – AKA Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell
Everybody knows that Axwell, Steve and Sebastian are separate entities: they all have their own record labels (Axtone, SIZE and Refune respectively) and they all have separate lives and individual concerns. But as the success of their recent sell-out Brixton Academy shows and the growing success of Masquerade Motel will testify, it’s what they achieve collectively and as a unit that makes for the most magic. Axwell has already been giving this subject some thought. “Swedish House Mafia is a monster of its own. We’ve tried to control it and seen it as a bonus but the truth is, it just won’t go away. I call it ‘IT’! When we work together, shit happens. It’s a machine that has a certain electricity that’s much stronger than anyone else. Let’s see where it takes us.” Last summer, the Swedes weren’t together as often as they’d hoped but the demand and collective success has dictated that the Mafia must now meet almost every single week. “This Summer ‘IT’ will be more often than last Summer because we are having such an amazing time. Last year we all lived in Ibiza and we got to hang out quite a bit. But now Steve and I have kids, it will be structured hanging out time.” Ingrosso looks at the three of them as bringing different elements to the house music table: “Steve has his underground beats, Axwell is more melodic and I’m more somewhere in between,” he reasons.
